Blues on the Green canceled

Wednesday, August 11, 2021 by Tai Moses

The producers of Blues on the Green have made the decision to postpone the last two performances of the popular free concert series, which were scheduled for Aug. 10 and 11, due to the “latest wave in this public health emergency.” A statement released on Twitter Monday read, “This was wholly our call and we’re grateful for the understanding and cooperation we’ve received from the artists that were set to play, the sponsors and the vendors that make Blues on the Green possible, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department, and the Austin public health officials we’ve consulted with along the way.” The statement concluded by urging everyone “to get vaccinated so we can again enjoy free live music in Zilker Park.”
